Karuk Agroecosystem Resilience Initiative: xúus nu’éethti – we are caring for it
The University of California at Berkeley and the Karuk Tribe aim to enhance the resilience of cultural agroecosystems under variable climatic conditions within Karuk Aboriginal Territory in the Klamath River Basin.
Agriculture and Food Research Initiative
The Karuk, Yurok, and Klamath Tribes and UC Berkeley collaborated on this five-year integrated research, extension and education program to rebuild a sustainable food system in the Klamath Basin to support healthy communities, ecosystems and economies in the bioregion.
The Karuk – UC Berkeley Collaborative prioritizes the involvement, education and leadership development of tribal youth in all our projects.
Berkeley Law students support the Karuk Tribe through a student legal services project that provides legal research related to natural resources issues.
How to get involved
A wealth of tribal community-generated research questions offer opportunities for students.
